Luna Pinot Grigio 2012
Luna Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2012 is a blend of 94.4% Pinot Grigio, 4.6 % Chardonnay and 1% Albarino that was fermented in stainless steel with no barrel fermentation or malo-lactic fermentation. A pale straw in color, this California white offers aromas of ripe pear, guava, and honeysuckle on the nose. On the palate, flavors of green apple pastries with mouth-filling, fleshy texture, wonderful balance and a refreshing finish.
Very dry, bitter, reminds me of Italian style white blends. Strange texture, almost oily or greasy. Did not like it very much.
To be fair, I am not a fan of Pinot Gris'. Light, clear color (pale straw) Light nose, tropical fruit aromas Medium dry with balanced acid; crisp with light body. Citrus and mineral flavors. I like this Pinot Grigio, would enjoy a glass during one of our hot Phoenix days.
Really quite surpprised how much I enjoyed this. The best quality is just how fresh this wine feels. Sweet green apple and melon, pale straw in appearance but very very fresh. And for the price too, its brilliant. I usually don't like Pinot Grigio but am certainly making an exception for this one.

The 2011 Pinot Grigio is a pale straw color. Aromas of pear, green apple, white peach and jasmine carry the nose. Hints of Asian spice fill the mouth and the wonderful minerality and full-bodied texture carry through a delicious lemony finish. - WineryBLEND:86% Pinot Grigio9% Albarino3% Chenin Blanc2% Chardonnay
